Unguento di Capsicum
An herbal equivalent to an "icy-hot" muscle rub. Whether it's sore muscles, bruising, or joint pain, this salve provides a heating and cooling comfort to the body. Cayenne Pepper gives the main heating element, and has shown anti-inflammatory qualities that aid in the decrease of pain signals. A mix of St. John's Wort and Arnica are added to further soothe muscle tension and aid in tissue repair. Finished off with menthol crystals to cool down and relax the body. *
